Laker Fans: What we expected and what we are getting now
Posted January 18, 2013 - 02:02 PM
Remember these quotes that all of us said at one point, "OKC is not going to have an answer for D12 and Pau."
"There is no way Duncan is going to be able to gaurd Dwight for a whole series."
Fast forward to now where we have "moral victories" over losing to Miami by only 8 and hanging in the game until the end. Also, we have our coach praising a loss just because we made a late run only to lose by a few points.
This isnt what any of us expected, this isnt what the Lakers culture is all about and something really needs to be done!
I am getting restless from getting my hopes up everytime they play 2-3 good games against mediocore teams, then being exposed when they play an actual contender.
As a Laker fan of over 15 years all im asking/hoping is that something gets done because we cant keep hoping that things are going to change when in reality nobody is doing anything to change it.

Defensively, I imagined there would be some sort of coordinator in place. D'Antoni never ended up hiring anyone and as a result even though we have one of the best defensive players to ever play we're not making use of him, and team's, like the Heat last night, are taking advantage of that big time.
At minimum, the offense needs to change so the Lakers can make the playoffs and go on a run.

Now, this situation isn't even fun.
Pau Gasol is GONE

i think we should've amnestied Blake and tried to resign Sessions, it seems like right when we traded for Nash the FO just basically cut off all talks with his agent.

We are in a deep hole and my last bit of hope rests with how we have been playing in this "new season" sure we made some mistakes that ultimately cost us the game vs Miami but we are trying to get better and you don't get better by beating the best teams to start, we have to focus on beating the average teams first and then we'll worry about the really good teams.
This is it though if we go back to losing we will be out of the playoff picture for sure, we now have what should be a winnable week coming up, the tougher teams will be Chicago and Memphis but we should able to beat both. For the rest of the month we should only lose to OKC and if we do that then that will have to be due to improvement let's just hope we do improve and get better.
